Salzberg Weissburgunder 2018
“Taste from where I come.”
It is as if you can smell the essence of a plant:
– roots that creep their way through loam into the limestone
– vegetal, stabilizing spice that is taken in through leaves and stems, suggesting subtle, three-dimensional bitterness
– the pure sensorial beauty of floral nectar exuded by alluring blossoms and fleshy fruit, all united in one wine.
Vehemence is the strategy of this bright Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) on the palate, which is initiated with sharply honed edges. With creamy texture and a broad-shouldered body, it bristles with tautness, vitality and temperament. With immense succulent fruit and acid that has all sails set, the Salzberg Weissburgunder is headed for a lengthy journey and reverberates austerely in perpetual motion. Length that continues until the mouth waters and demands food and another sip.
A tribute to faith of origin composed in the year 2018 and described in Weissburgunder.
This wine as an actor on a grand stage – the Salzberg in Gols. A thrilling story from only two very sun-exposed vine rows. The versatile repertoire that this Weissburgunder offers is founded in sandy loam with high lime content.
